How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG turns as sharply as the BMW, rides better than the RS4, and accelerates just as fast as the Lexus IS-F.

But in reality, brand loyalty reigns among these cars.

The RS4 sports standard all-wheel drive; the Lexus IS-F, an eight-speed automatic transmission.

BMW also offers its M3 in convertible and sedan forms if four doors aren't sexy enough for you.

The 2008 BMW M3 redefines the performance envelope for BMW's 3-Series range--but at a significant weight and price penalty. You might be going too fast to notice, though.
